The Great Escape

*sigh* Steve McQueen. Err I mean, credit:  The Great Escape, Mirisch Corporation

Ok, so maybe I'm not exactly a prisoner of war... but tonight I'm escaping my life and leaving for a much needed vacation.  My sig. O has to travel a lot for his job and it just so happens that his work has him down in warm, sunny, sandy Florida, so I've decided to join him for a long weekend at the beach. :)  I might still be rebelling, but I don't feel guilty about paying for this plane ticket.  My budget has been rebounding since the end of the holidays and I've been sticking tightly to not spending (Plane ticket aside :p).  This trip for me is about finding balance.  I punish myself day after day for my financial situation and I think this is the first step in me saying that it's ok.  While I want to pay it off as fast as humanly possible, I also need to live with it for the next 5 or even 10+ years.  I always have to remind myself that I accumulated this debt over years, not overnight and that it will go away over years, not overnight.     

This trip is all about Money Love.

Snowball in Florida
